LONDON.- Christie’s announced Architectural Heritage: The Adrian and Suzy Puddy Collection , to be held on Wednesday, 10 March 2010. The sale will include 220 lots of fine antique garden statuary and ornaments, handcarved natural limestone chimneypieces and paneling, with estimates ranging from £500 to £40,000; the collection is expected to realize over £700,000. Offered by the family run business Architectural Heritage as the company welcomes in a new era with the founders Adrian and Suzy Puddy moving into retirement, the firm will be taken over by their son Alex Puddy.

Alex Puddy commented, “The business founded by my parents has become an established and renowned source for exceptional statuary, fireplaces and garden furniture. The auction will offer 220 lots representing the development and success of 34 years of the business, and having taken the baton for a new generation and the next stage of the company's history, I look forward to building on their success, and ensuring that Architectural Heritage will continue to offer a leading range of garden decorations alongside contemporary works.”

Architectural Heritage was founded in 1975 and was one of the first to recognize the importance of salvaging our ‘Architectural Heritage’. Since its simple beginnings opening only at weekends at Boddington Manor, near Tewkesbury, the company has now relocated to Taddington Manor, situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, and grown to become one of Europe’s largest resources for antique and replica pieces. Architectural Heritage is pleased to be associated with renowned international interior and garden designers and private clients including members of royal families both in Great Britain and Europe. Client confidentiality and discretion has always been a part of the company’s founding principals.

Highlights include a pair of carved marble models of Molossian Hounds, executed in the mid-19th century (estimate: £40,000-60,000); an Italian marble figure of a maiden by Prof Bazzanti, mid-19th century (estimate: £20,000-40,000); a set of four Cotswold stone urns, 19th century (estimate: £12,000-18,000); an Edwardian octagonal summerhouse, created by Julius Caesar & Sons, early 20th century (estimate: £8,000-12,000) – all of which would perfectly complement any garden as we look forward to the warmer weather in the Spring months.
